Misc. Author Info : DooMaholic. This is _not_ my first level,
but I have discarded previous levels for
Description : This is level 1 of a 4 level episode. It's
supposed to take place in a Space Station.
I have spent plenty of time aligning and
drawing new textures to get some good effects.
Hope, you enjoy it !
It was designed for DooM 1, I have painfully
converted it to work with DooMII.
Any comments and suggestions welcome.
Additional Credits to : my wife, for having so much patience.

* The story so far *
Solar system, 2144: Innumerous objects are orbiting earth, some of them are
small as a pea, others are bigger than todays aircraft carriers. Some of them
are still functional satellites or inhabitated stations, but most of these
objects represent the cosmic scrapmetal of the new milennium.
Doc Martin, a former chemist, who has been made redundant by a computer (it
was a positron aleph model with a spasmium bioprocessor) 20 years ago is
seeking his fortune by searching the bigger metal chunks like satellites and
abandoned space stations for silicon computing relicts of the 20th and 21st
century, which are very valuable for collectors.
Today it's friday (do I have to say, that it is the 13th ?), and it was a lame
day so far, the metal detectors only found one object of interesting size,
which proved to be a cobalt-enriched planetoid. But only 10 minutes ago, the
detectors showed a huge artefakt, resembling an orbit station as they were
build between 2012 and 2024. Oh, dear - a huge station full of antiques, just waiting
to be collected by him - he simply can't believe it. This will be the last day
he has to work ! Oh, this is going to be easy: He switches on the tractor
beam, takes a pistol(you never know !) and an antigravity box (for the
goodies !) and enters the trans-matter ...........
- He doesn't know yet - but the next days he'll never forget in his life.
The evils he will encounter will follow him even in his worst nightmares.
